Pushing the limits

This year, we outdid ourselves. We brought the rich, smoky flavors of Central Texas Barbecue to the heart of the big apple; created a one-of-a-kind family event complete with puppets, singing, make-your-own Milano people, and cotton candy; tasted unique and unforgettable dishes from over 50 different chefs and purveyors; re-created a beloved California diner, and so much more – all while reveling in the lights of Times Square! 

No. 9 was a milestone in terms of pushing The Food Film Fest envelope, and you, NYC foodies and filmies, embraced every minute of it. Thank you for coming out and making it all count!
